    Does that mean M3 simply won't get SDHC support?

    Whats the real have to do with the simply getting SDHC support? Just because a new product has it, doesnt mean they cut support for the old one.

    Hopefully some day you guys will make a universal version. Having to buy hardware to support a language is stupid and most forum members here would agree.

    Is there an actual reason why they do it? Is it to charge English people more? Or is there another reason?

    There's 2 reasons I can think of, but mostly it points to money. They make a few bucks more off the English version than the Chinese one for god knows what reason. It is not a lot of money, but when you deal hunt on it, it makes you wonder a little bit. There's a lot of bargain hunters on this product and the M3 team doesn't seem to realize that. Also if you have a Chinese one, I'd imagine you can print the instructions and such in Chinese only, whereas the English one you'd print in English. However it's kinda dumb cuz there's more languages than just those two and I think they also lean Japanese people towards the English product. Hopefully my Chinese one has those resistors still but it probably doesn't with my luck. My M3 simply was already a newer fab than the photos suggested at the time and that was rather disappointing. Both my M3 simply and R4 DS are the cheaper models, without the IC just has a blob of goo over the microchip like the inside of a $1 chinese watch. Very poor imho.

    Same with my R4, but I still was able to mod it anyway [​IMG]

    As much as I dislike and am opposed to language/region locking the different language versions I actually do understand why they tried to do it this way. Basically it amounts to what they said: "protecting their retailers"; stopping any form of price competition between different region distributors that they have "official" agreements with. If I see something new listed as in stock a HK mail order shop for $5 less than the place I can get it from in NA as pre-order, the impulse would be to purchase it there - and be I'll be damned if, by the time I cover shipping, I didn't actually get it for any less (sometimes more) and in about the same time I would have gotten it from the NA distributors.

    M3 Real do sold in bundles which you will have three option,
    M3 real card + Rumble pack
    M3 real card + Rumble ram pack
    M3 real + Rumble pack + GBA expansion pack (Perfect Bundle Version )
    And this three option is surely English version,the M3 team has not release M3 Real English Version sold alone so that all the M3 real the solely sold is Chinese version or split from this three option.

    The reason is clerar: If they don't offer a cheaper version to China, they will just make knockoffs and you'll never be able to find a real M3DS real in China... and this will happen even if they can't duplicate the functions! For instance, we all saw how cheap the WiiKey was to make when the "perfect clones" showed up for just over $5 and the genuine WiiKey was $40+. They should have included a pressed config disc and an SD memory card adapter and other bonuses to make it more competitive. Heck, a pressed config disc from Thin Ice Media would be bootable without the mod and would still let you dump games and such (if they made the header FW2.0+ compatible [​IMG])! The "genuine" sticker that they added after the fact doesn't help at all.

    In China, it's probably sold very near to their actual costs so, to profit, they have to charge more elsewhere and satiate China with a low cost one that can't be easily exported. That heads off clones at the pass.
